The four-part series, I Belong to Glasgow, will look at women, past and present who have contributed to society.
A picture of Hannah's at her 1930 graduation from the University of Glasgow was projected onto advertising screens in Union Street and St Enoch Square yesterday to promote the BBC documentary.
It will be presented by Karen Dunbar, Sanjeev Kohli, Elaine C Smith and Alex Norton. Last month Karen led an impromptu performance of I Belong to Glasgow at Central Station, joined by 33 singers.
Hannah, wh0o grew up in the Gorbals area, is widely regarded as one of the last survivors of the Art Nouveau period when "Glasgow Style" became a global hallmark.
She died on December 18, 2008, at the age of 100. On the day she died, her niece Fiona Frank learned she was to be awarded a honorary doctorate from the University of Glasgow, where she studied English and Latin. Hannah became the first person to be awarded a posthumous doctorate from the university, where she studied as a young woman.
Commenting on the documentary, Hannah's niece Fiona Frank said: "Every week something new happens in the world of Hannah Frank. It's wonderful to know that there are so many people rooting to ensure her name lives on."
The documentary, will also look at the contribution of Glasgow men past and present, and will be broadcast in May and is being made to celebrate this year's Commonwealth Games.
